If someone that you love has dementia, don't believe the popular view that they are lost to you forever, living in a world of their own. You can keep in touch if you want to. Is it your job to care for people who have dementia? You probably know that if you spend a little time with them you will find out how much they are PEOPLE with a disease, not a problem to be dealt with as expeditiously as possible. Jane Crisp writes, in an easy-to-read fashion, about the way she kept in touch with the mother she loved and valued. She gives practical ideas for how we can involve someone we love in our daily activities even when popular opinion would throw them on the scrap heap. This book is a joy to read and a resource to dip into for ideas about how you, the family member or professional carer, can celebrate and value the lives of those who have dementia.
